After The Ending (The Ending #1)
The Virus spread. Billions died. The Ending began. We may have survived the apocalypse, but the Virus changed us.
When people started getting sick, “they” thought it was just the flu. My roommate, my boyfriend, my family…they’re all gone now. I got sick too. I should have died with them—with the rest of the world—but I didn’t. I thought witnessing the human population almost disappear off the face of the earth was the craziest thing I’d ever experience. I was so wrong. My name is Dani O’Connor, I’m twenty-six-years-old, and I survived The Ending.
The Virus changed everything. The world I knew is gone, and life is backwards. We’ve all had to start over. I’ve been stripped of my home, my dreams…all that is me. I’m someone else now—broken and changed. Other survivors’ memories and emotions haunt me. They invade my mind until I can no longer separate them from my own. I won’t let them consume me. I can’t. My name is Zoe Cartwright, I’m twenty-six-years-old, and I survived The Ending.
We’ve been inseparable for most of our lives, and now our friendship is all we have left. The aftermath of the Virus has stranded us on opposite sides of the United States. Trusting strangers, making sacrifices, killing—we’ll do anything to reach one another. Fear and pain may be unavoidable, but we’re strong…we’re survivors. But to continue surviving in this unfamiliar world plagued by Crazies and strange new abilities, we have to adapt. We have to evolve.
And more than anything, we have to find each other.

Lindsey Fairleigh lives her life with one foot in a book—as long as that book transports her to a magical world or bends the rules of science. Her novels, from post-apocalyptic to time travel and historical fantasy, always offer up a hearty dose of unreality, along with plenty of adventure and romance. When she’s not working on her next novel, Lindsey spends her time reading and trying out new recipes in the kitchen. She lives in the Napa Valley with her supportive husband and confused cats.

Lindsey Pogue has always been a little creative. As a child she established a bug hospital on her elementary school soccer field, compiled books of collages as a teenager, and as an adult, expresses herself through writing. Her novels are inspired by her observations of the world
around her—whether she’s traveling, people watching, or hiking. When not plotting her next storyline or dreaming up new, brooding characters, Lindsey’s wrapped in blankets watching her favorite action flicks or going on road trips with her own leading man.

I am a huge fan of post-apocalyptic books so of course when I saw this book was going on tour I knew that I wanted to be a part of it. I was so excited when I saw that I was chosen for a review spot!

I love survival stories and the effect it has on the characters so I jumped right into this one. 

The apocolyspe happens almost immediately when the book starts. A virus is released into the atmosphere and causes people to become violently sick and die almost immediately. The few that survive are left to fend for themselves in this new world. They face unknown dangers and have to learn how to survive and regain their lives.

The main characters of the story are Dani and Zoe who are best friends. They are seperate at the time of the apocolypse and so the story is basically told from both of the Point-Of-View's. They share their experiences and their survival stories to each other thru the internet and texts as they try to make their way back to each other. 

There are so many different stories going on and I loved each of them. All the characters have a special place in the story line and make it so much more real. The romance and drama that is written into the story is so incredible. I really enjoyed this book and cant wait to see what happens with all of these characters in the next story.....
